A man that’s 20 years older than her and despite all of his harsh ways Jane falls in love with him.

Jane Eyre is a long book and uses old fashioned language so it may not be for everyone, but those in need of a really good romance, I highly recommend it because it definitely gave me a sense of what love is and how blinded everyone is by
